CENTENNIAL ALMANAC FOR 1881. 

SATURN IS THE RULING PLANET THIS YEAR. 



The Year in General. — Will be mostly cold and 
damp, even if it should be very dry at certain times ; 
it will, however, generally be considered a cold, wet, un- 
pleaaant year. 

Spring — The beginning of April will be somewhat 
warm, yet very unpleasant till in May ; afterwards if 
the days are pleasant and the nights cool, a severe 
drought will follow ; notwithstanding there will be some 
rainy weather. Grass and vegetable:^ will start late 

Summer. — In the beginning it will be wet ; followed 
by great heat and drought, so that summer crops will 
suffer. Very destructive storms of thunder, lightning, 
and hail will visit different sections. 

Autumn.— Will be cold and damp ; early freezing, 
followed by heavy thunderstorms. After the middle of 
October, cold weather will set in. December will be 
damp but somewhat pleasant. 

Winter. — Will continue till near April. In the be- 
ginning it will be damp with heavy rains. Towards the 
end of December winter will set in, with deep snow and 
cold, and continue long ; hence the necessity of prepar- 
ing firewood and feed. 

Spring Crops. — As the spring will be cold and un- 
pleasant, and as there will be no continuous warm 
weather until June, the spring crops should not be 
planted early. Barley will do well, much will depend 
on the gathering Grass in general will be good, though 
but little second crop. 



Winter Grain will succeed well; waste no good 
weather in gathering, else the grain will grow and spoil. 

Fall Seeding. — Wheat and rye should be so wn early, 
for it will grow slowly, even if it rain much. 

Fruit will fail on account of the cold, unpleasant 
spring. 

Hops will not be plentiful, yet they will be good. 

Wine. — The vintage will be light, in general it will 
fall off, mostly in the blossom. Whether much or little, 
the wine will be of poor quality. The fruit should be 
gathered early, but the vines should not be covered 
early ; even if it freezes early in November, it will open 
again and not close up until in December. If the vines 
are covered up too soon they will be injured by the wet 
ground. 

Wind and Storms. — -There will be some very severe 
storms, with thunder and lightning. 

Insects. — Snakes and toads will be abundant and in 
winter, mice numerous. There will not be so many 
worms in the grain as in other years, and they will be 
destroyed by the severe cold in winter. 

Diseases. — The latter part of summer, and also in 
the fall, many dangerous and fatal diseases will prevail, 
such as fatal fevers. Diarrhea, Dysentery, Catarrh, Gout, 
Tetter, Palsy, Vertigo, Fever, Jaundice, and such like 
diseases ; caused mostly by cold feet.

BRE THBEN' S ALMANAC, 



[1881. 



INTRODUOTOEY. 

Another year wall soon be past and we are 
reminded that the time has again arrived for 
us to publish our Annual Almanac for 1881. 
To do this requires considerable time and la- 
bor, as we wish to make it worthy of the 
patronage that has been so liberally given it 
in the past. 

From year to year we receive suggestions 
from our patrons as to what would be the 
most suitable reading for its pages, &c. These 
are all considered and we are governed by 
them so far as we think they may be for the 
general good. But even in this, we have 
learned that we may make mistakes. For 
several years a number of our readers insisted 
on having the Ministerial List arranged in 
States. We became favorably impressed with 
the idea and tried it for 1880. But we soon 
learned that the new arrangement gave 
very poor satisfaction, and in some cases 
was YHYj inconvenient. For illustration : I 
hear of a minister by the name of James 
Jones and I wish to find his postoffice. 
I first turn to Pennsylvania and look over the 
names commencing with J., but do not find 
Jones. I then turn to another state and ex- 
amine the J's there and so on till I find the 
right one, thus requiring a long time to find 
the name and address, when by the first ar- 
rangement it could be found at once. Seing 
this disadvantage, many of those who favored 
the change requested us to go back to our 
former arrangment, and we have done so, be- 
lieving that, all things considered it is tbe 
better. We have given the list special care 
and have tried to make it as nearly correct as 
we possibly could, with the assistance render- 
ed. We have, this year, also added the 
weather prognostications upon which is plac- 
ed considerable value by some. We add them 
because it is customary lor Almanacs to have 
them and not for any value that we place upon 
them further than they harmonize with the 
general astronomical theory. 

We insert such reading matter as seems to 
be proper for a religious family Almanac, and 
as practical and beneficial as possible to the 
reader. Thanking the brotherhood for its 
very liberal patronage in the past we now 
present to you the "Brethren's Almanac" for 
1881, hoping that it may find a place at the 
fireside of every home in the brotherhood. 



OUE FOKEIGN MISSIONAKY WOEK. 



For years the more earnest workers of the 
Church felt a desire to have the gospel, as we 
understand it, preached in foreign lands, but 
there was no way that seemed open for a work 
of this kind Sometime in the year 1874, 
Christian Hope, a native of Denmark, united 
with the Brethren Church. Soon after this he 
commenced agitating the necessity of a more 
extensive Missionary work, and of sending 
Missionaries to Denmark. During this time 
Bro. Hope corresponded with bo me of his 
friends in Denmark and also sent some tracts. 
B7 the reading of these tracts Christian Han- 
sen, of Christiana, Denmark, became convinced 
of the truthfulness of the Brethren's doctrine 
and raade a call upon the Church to send some 
one over to preach for them The importance 
of this work and the necessity of complying 
with the call was felt throughout the brother- 
hood, but as brother Hope was a resident of 
the Northern District of Blinois, and felt a 
special interest in having the gospel preached 
to his own people, this District took hold of 
the work in earnest. On the 26th of August, 
1875, the Brethren of the Cherry Grove Church, 
Carroll Co., III., met and the Danish Mission 
call was considered. The first steps taken, was 
to form a committee to publish tracts in the 
Danish language for distribution m Denmark, 
and Isaac Eowland, of Lanark, III, was ap- 
po'inted Treas., to receive funds for this purpose. 
At a meeting of the Northern District .of 
Illinoise, held at Cherry Grove Church, Car- 
roll Co., on the 12 th of November, 1875, breth- 
ren Enoch Eby, Paul Wetzel, aud Christian 
Hope, were appointed as Missionaries to Den- 
mark. But as the two first named were not 
conversant with the Danish language, they 
thought best not to go, and Bro.Hope and his 
wife concluded to go alone. 

On the 6th of January, 1876, brother Hope 
and family arrived at Huntingdon, on their 
way to their new field of labor. From here 
they went to the eastern part of the State, 
where they were detained several weeks, after 
which they sailed for Denmark. For this 
journey their supply of money was so small 
that, in his first letter after hia arrival, he says : 
"Had we not received $12 00 on the Danish 
fund while in Huntingdon, Pa., we would have 
been compelled to sell our clothes." From 
this it will be seen that our first Foreign Mis- 
sionary effort was not spoiled with an overa- 
bundance of money.

BEETMBEN' S ALMANAC. 



[1881. 



His first stopping place was at Christian 
Hansen's who was one of the first Danish con- 
verts to the Brethren's Church in Denmark. 
He was baptized on the 6th of May, 1876. 
While this Mission was tinder the care of the 
Northern District of Illinois, it was supported 
by donations from the whole brotherhood. At 
first the work went very slow, as there were 
a great many difficulties to meet, but through 
the perseverance of Bro. Hope, the leaven 
soon commenced working, and it was not long 
till a little band of believers were gathered 
together. By the latter part of 1877, the num- 
ber was sufficiently large to organize, and bro- 
ther Hope was only in the second degree of 
the ministry, it was thought good by the breth- 
ren of Northern Illinois, to send several Elders 
over to Denmark to organize a church there 
and to install brother Hope to the Eldership. 
For this work, brethren Enoch Eby and Daniel 
Ery were chosen. To attend to this business 
they left New York on the 10th of December, 
1877, and arrived about the 20th. In a letter 
written by brother Hope, at the arrival of 
brother Eby and Fry, he informed us that they 
held their first Lovefeast on the fourth Sunday 
of December. Since then, the work has been 
moving encouragingly forward, and at this 
time the Church there numbers about thirty- 
four membeis, one elder and two ministers. 

At our last Annual Meeting (1880) the fol- 
lowing resolution was passed: 

'Resolved, That the management ©f the Danish Mis- 
sion be transferred to the "Domestic and Foreign 
Mission Board." 

For the government of this Board the fol- 
lowing was recommended and passed : 

1. We recommend this Annual Meeting appoint 
five brethren, sound in the faith and fully alive to our 
missionary interests, to superintend the domestic and 
foreign missionary work of the General Brotherhood. 

2. That those five brethren appoint out of their 
number such officers (Cor. Sec'y, Treasurer, etc.,) as 
the nature of the work requires. 

3. That brethren be instructed to interfere in no 
way with any present individual church or district 
missionary efforts among our brethren. 

4. That Annual Meeting advise that any domestic 
and foreign mission work of a general nature, like 
the Danish Mission, now under the care of District 
Oouncil, be committed to the supervision of this 
Board. 

5. That this meeting recommend that the fund now 
in the hands of the Brethren's Work of Evangelism be 
committed to the Board of the General Conference. 

6. That this Board be instructed to proceed no 
further in its appointment, etc., than the means in 
its treasury^will justify. 

7. That the officers of this Board bo required to 
make an official report of their woi k, its condition. 



operation and wants, to each session of our General 
Conference, and that said report go into our regular 
Minutes 

8. That every church in the brotherhood be re- 
quested to appoint a solicitor in its own congregation 
to raise funds for this work and forward the same to 
the Treasurer of this Mission Board, at least every 
six months. 

9. That this Board be instructed to proceed to its 
work at once as opportunity permits. 

10 The Standing Committee of Annual Meeting be 
required to fill any vacancy that may occur in the 
Board from time to time, and that its members be 
elected every four years. 

The following persons were appointed to 
compose the Mission Board: 

James Quinter, Huntingdon, Pa ; S. T. Bos- 
serman, Dunkirk, Ohio ; Joseph Leedj, Anti- 
och, Indiana ; Enoch Eby, Lena, Illinois, and 
Daniel Brubaker, Iowa Centre, Iowa. 

The officers of the Board are 

President — Enoch Eby, Lena, Stephenson 
county, Illinois. 

Secretary — S T. Bosserman, Dunkirk, Har- 
din county, Ohio. 

Treasurer — James Quinter, Huntingdon, Pa. 

As the Missionary cause is a good one and 
needs the sympathy and aid of the whole 
Church, it is to be hoped that all will assist in 
sustaining it. For this reason we have given 
the names and addresses of the officers, so that 
all may know how to correspond with them. 
All monies should be addressed to the Treas- 
urer as above, and be sent in Registered letter, 
Drafts or Postal Order. 



A PLAK TO COOL ROOMS. 



Often at night, when the heat is well nigh 
unbearable, a wet cloth hung in the window 
over the blind will cool as if a shower had fal- 
len, and every one knows how water poured 
on the pavement in front of the door will 
freshen the hot, dry air. This principle of the 
reduction of temperature by evaporation is 
capable of much practical application. In 
India and other tropical countries, where ice 
is almost unknown, the natives cool their 
drinking water by suspending earthen jars 
filled with it in a brisk current of air, which 
process is said to cool it thoroughly and rap- 
idly. So, also, when ice is unattainable, butter 
may be kept firm and sweet by setting Hhe 
bowl containing it in a shallow vessel of water 
and covering with a napkin the ends of which 
are well immersed in the water ia the bottom 
of the dish. \

ECHOES FEOM THE PEESS. 



No ONE worthy of the name of a man will 
find an excuse for yielding to temptation, to 
evil, because he is neglected by or finds no 
sympathy among Christian people. — Baptist 
Weekly. 

There is no investment of money on earth 
that yields so large a return of earthly com- 
fort and peace and happiness, as the money 
we invest in the work of the Lord. — 'Christian 
Observer. 

It is dangerous for a Christian to cherish 
the memory of an injury which he has for- 
given — to dwell upon an act of injustice to- 
wards himself unconfessed and unrepented 
of. — Advance. 

We ought to promote such Sunday cus- 
toms as express the fact that uian is man and 
has a sou.. For, stated in terms of secular 
times, Sunday time is the soul of man set 
tree. — Advance. 

Faith is the spring of one's spiritual life ; 
works are the streams whichj flowing out of 
the believing heart, become sources of life to 
society. Where no streams appear, there can 
be no spring. —lion's Herald. 

Wherever the church is enlarged and has 
great prosperity, it is because God's people 
take his promises at something like their 
real value — because they "take him at his 
work." — Herald and Presbyter. 

It is impossible that an insignificant gift 
can be accompanied by a proper spirit A 
mean gift implies a mean giver; and a mean 
giver has a mean religion, judged by Bible 
students, is no religion. — Christian Index. 

The ohitrohes of our Lord Jeaus Christ edu 
«at6 the public sentiment of Christendom- 
Let them unite to create a public conscience 
against war, and armies will disband, and 
armaments will go to pieces. — Evangelist- 

"LovB IS the fulfilling of the Law." It 
cannot be overdone. Of course it must be 
real love, love subordinate to the law of 
Christ ; but wh®n it is proper love there can- 
not possibly be too much of it. — Sunday 
School Times' 

It makes no difference whether men like it 
it or not, it is tbe duty of the Christian to be 
always "about his Father's business, and to 
see to it that the avowal of his fealty to 
Christ, is not company, and in no place, and 
on no occasian brings t® his cheek the blusk ©f 
shame." — Central Presbyterian. 



GLUTTOIS^Y. 



I was born two years before my friend^ 
Isaac, and he was much hardier than I ; yet 
he is now the older, by far. He uses tobacco 
profusely, and this, I think, is one thing that 
has hastened age. How much better it is to 
live after God's laws. God's laws environ the 
body as well as the soul. Indeed, they are 
interwoven and one. '-Present your bodies a 
living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God.**^ 
It IS God's order that we should be healthy. 
We do not enough make this a matter of con- 
science. Our bodies and souls are intimately 
related to each other, so that what injures 
one injures the other. As with an overgorged 
mosquito, a heavy meal brings us prostrate 
on the earth, and noble thoughts and feelings 
smoulder in the dust. Improper eating with- 
ers the energies. We cannot think well after 
eating injudiciously, any more than we can 
sleep well ; and if we have not the use of our 
minds, where is culture ? where is communion 
with God and with each other ? 

The stomach is a great hindrance to the 
progress ot gospel truth, and of any other 
truth. Sunday is the great feast day with 
many, even Christians. They use their rest 
from other labor to devise extra dishes and to 
gorge. This is doubly wrong. Preachers, 
must preach to a dead weight of rich cakes,, 
pies, biscuit, pork, preserves, etc. One minis- 
ter used to say that he had to preach Sunday 
afternoon to about two bushels and a half of 
baked beans. Many congregations carry a 
heavier load and a worse one. Is it any won- 
der that the truth is not heard, or, if heard, 
is understood by so few ? As long as people 
live to eat, they cannot well listen to live ; 
and what a solemn thing to sit under the 
truth and yet perish 1 

Just enough of proper food will not stupefy, 
but leave all the faculties clear and en erotic, 
to bo exercised in the nobler fields. Gi^e me 
clear minds to preach to, and half the work 
is done ; but give me minds clouded by stom- 
ach improprieties, and I will ever have muck 
to do, and but little done. I wish that Chris- 
tians were more generally convinced of the 
wrong of defiling the temple of God; then a 
better example would be set, at least on the 
Sabbath. Hereafter I shall preach tempopstl 
as well as spiritual things. 



The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plen^.- 
teousnees ; but of every one that is hasty to want*^^

BBBTHBEN' S ALMANA C 



[1881. 



THE LIFETIME OF MAN. 

When the world was created, and all crea- 
tures assembled to have their lifetime appoint- 
ed, the ass first advanced, and asked how long 
he would have to live ? 

"Thirty years,'' replied ISTature; "will that 
be agreeable to thee ?" 

''Alas !" answered the ass, "it is a long while! 
Eemember what a wearisome existence will be 
mine ; from morning until night I shall have 
to bear heavy burdens, dragging corn sacks to 
the mill, that others may eat bread, while I 
shall have no encouragement nor be refreshed 
by anything but by blows and kicks. Give but 
a portion of that time, I pray!'' 

Nature was moved with compassion, and 
presented but eighteen yearg. The ass went 
away comforted, and the dog came forward. 

'•How long dost thou require to live?'' asked 
Nature. "Thirty years were too long for the 
ass, but wilt thou be contented with them ?" 

"Is it thy will that I should ?" repaed the 
dog. "Think how much I shall have to run 
about ; my feet will not last so long a time, 
and when I have lost my voice for barking 
and my teeth for biting, what else shall I be 
fit for, but to lie in a corner and growl ?'' 

Nature gave him twelve years. The ape 
then appeared. 

"Thou wilt doubtless, willingly have the 
thirty years?" said Nature; "thou -wilt not 
have to labor as the ass and the dog. Life will 
fee pleasant to thee?" 

"Ah no !" cried he, "so it may seem to others, 
but it will not be. Should puddings ever rain 
down, I shall have no spoon, I shall play merry 
tricks, and excite laughter by my grimaces, 
and then be rewarded with a sour apple. How 
often sorrow lies concealed behind a jest 1 I 
shall not be able to endure so long " 

Nature was gracious, and he jeceived but 
ten. At last came man, healthy and etrong, 
and asked the measure of his days. 

"Will thirty years content thee ?" 

"How short a time !" exclaimed man. "When 
I shall have built my house, and kindled a fire 
on my hearth ; when the trees I shall have 
planted are about to bloom and bear fruit, 
when life will seem to me most desirable, I 
Bhali die. Oh, Nature, grant me a longer 
period I" 

"Thou Shalt hare the eighteen years of the 
ass, beside." 

"That is not enough," replied man. 

"Take likewi«># the twelv« years of the dog," 



'•It is not yet sufficitnt,' reiterated man — 
"give me more." 

"I give then the ten years of the ape ; in 
vain wilt thou claim more." 

Man departed dissatisfied. Thus man lives 
seventy years. The first thirty are his human 
years, and pass swiftly by. He is then healthy 
and happy — he labors cheerfully and rejoices 
in his existence The eighteen years of the 
ass come next, and burden upon burden is 
heaped upon him ; he carries the corn that is 
to feed others \ blows and kicks are tht wages 
of his faithlul service. The twelve years of 
the dog follow, and he looses his teeth, and lies 
in a corner and growls. When these are gone, 
the ape's ten years form the conclusion. Then 
man, weak and silly, becomes the sport of 
children. 



FERTILIZEES FOR HOUSE PLANTS. 



When a plant is in a bad condition, it is a 
mistake to apply a stimulating fertilizer. The 
causes of ill health are many, but the most 
general one with those who have had no ex- 
perience in the care of plants is overwatering. 
Plants to live must have water; therefore the 
more water the better seems to be the reason- 
ing, and the consequence is starved, nearly 
leafless sticks in pots of mud. In the majority 
of cases withholding the water is one of the 
things needed, and with invalids, a stimulating 
fertilizer is the one thing of all others not 
needed. When plants are in a flourishing 
condition and making growth, the fertilizer 
may be useful, especially if the soil in the 
pots was originally rather poor. Any of the 
fertilizers used in the garden would answer 
for the plants in the house, were it not neces- 
sary to avoid unpleasant odors, and to consult 
neatness and ease of application. For hard- 
wooded, slow-growing plants, very fine bone 
— flower of bone — sold by seedsmen for the 
purpose, is perhaps the best ; a few tablespoon- 
fuls being forked into the soil of the pot. For 
soft- wooded, quick growing, a liquid fertilizer 
may be used. This may be guano, a teaspoon- 
ful to a gallon ; or the water of ammonia 
(liquid hartshorn) of the drugstore, an ounce 
to the gallon. Water the plants with either 
of these, instead of clear water, once or twice 
a week, as the condition ©f the plant requires. 
No inrariabl© rul© can be given. — American 
Agriculturalist,

HONESTY REWAEDED. 



George and Harry worked in the same shop ; 
but as the working season was almost over, 
and there would be little work to do during 
the summer months, their employer informed 
them as they settled up on Saturday evening 
that he could give only one of them work 
hereafter. He said he was very sorry but it 
was the best he could do. He told them both 
to come back on Monday morning, and that 
he would decide on the one he wished to re- 
main. So the young men returned to their 
boarding-house a good deal cast down ; for 
work was scarce, and neither knew where he 
could obtain a situation if he was the one to 
leave. 

That eveningr as they counted over their 
week's wages, Harry said to his friend : — 

*'Mr. Wilson paid me a quarter of a dollar 
too much." 

**So he has me,'' said George as he looked 
at his. 

'•How could he have made the mistake?" 
said Harry. 

'*0h, he was very busy when six o'clock 
came j and, handling so much money, he was 
careless when he came to pay our trifle," said 
George, as he stuffed his into his pocket book. 

•*Well," said Harry, "I am going to stop, as 
I go to the post-office, and hand the money to 
him." 

**You are wonderful particular about a 
quarter," said George. "What does he care 
about that trifle ? Why he would not come 
to the door for it if he knew what you want- 
ed ; and I'm sure you have worked hard 
enough to earn it." 

But Harry called and handed his employer 
the^money, who thanked him for returning it, 
and went into the house. Mr. Wilson had 
paid them each a quarter of a dollar too much 
to test their honesty. 

So when Monday came, he seemed to have 
no difficulty in determining v/hich one h© 
would keep. 

He chose Harry, and entrusted the shop to 
his care for a few months while he was away 
on business, and was so well pleased with his 
management, that whea work commenced in 
the fall he gave him the position of superin- 
tendent. 

Five years afterwards, Harry was Mr. Wil 
son's partner ; and George worked in the same 
shop again, but as a common laborer. 



PAEENTS, GONSIDEE. 

Kot long ago, the principal of one of our 
institutions for the reformation of wayward 
boys declared, after careful investigation of 
their previous history, that the chief cause of 
their vicious and abandoned behaviour was to 
be sought in the miserable, fictitious trash and 
mock-heroic pictures with which they had be- 
come familiar, and out of which they had 
fashioned imitative ideals of conduct. The 
evil thus wrought is as incalculable as it i& 
utterly appalling. The country fairly swarm» 
with story papers and periodicals ; vividly 
illustrated, sometimes with scenes of violence 
and bloodshed, sometimes with attitudes of 
agonistic love and mawkish despair, and 
sometimes pictures of heroes and heroines 
embracing in a manner suggestive not merely 
of driveling sentimentality, but of libidinous 
and contagious desire. Silently, but potently, 
the minds of the young and inexperienced are 
kindled with the fires of hell that blaze 
through their pages ; silently, but with irresis- 
tible charm, some false ideal of character and 
speech and action takes possession of the im- 
pressible imagination, and leaves an influence 
that prevades, like a passioned atmosphere^ 
one's whole futur© career.

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC 



[1881 



FAMILY EELIGION. 

Do you, members, keep up family religion ? 
Is there an altar in the house ef every mem- 
ber of your church ? Alas ! alas ! in many 
portions of the country where I have been 
family devotions are greatly neglected, and in 
some places, preachers do not pray m their 
families. It is not the case here, I hope. God 
grant it may never be ! Family prayer ! Why, 
it is the most delightful thing ever organized 
in a family on earth — family religion. When 
my father was converted, in the afternoon, he 
began family prayer that night, and never 
suffered a morning or evening from that day 
to the day of his death, unless providentially 
hindered, to pass without family prayer; and 
I tell you he was a minister of Christ and 
went to heaven praising God. 

"Don't weep, wife," said he on his dying 
bed, 

'*Jpsus can make a dying bed 

Feel soft as downy pillows are; 
While on his breast I lean my head, 
And breathe my life out sweetly there." 
That's a consolation, but not so much as the 
morning prayer and the evening hymn and 
the Scripture lesson. And that man of God 
knelt down, and lifted his voice, and hands, 
and eyes to heaven, and said, "God bless me, 
and my companion, and all ray children, and 
make us all Christians!" Those are green 
spots in meraorie's wastes. The first thing I 
did when I went to my own house was to 
have family prayer, and the last night I was 
at home I prayed with my family. I do not 
know how Christians can get along without 
family prayer. Every father, every mother, 
every head of the family ought to have an 
altar, and on that altar the sacrifice should be 
laid, and never taken off, and the smoke and 
incense should go up before God continually. 
— The Rev. Br. J, B. MFerrin, at Round Lake 
Camp-meeting.

FOOT COYBKING. 



No maiter how industrious or economical a 
young man is, his endeavors to save are wasted 
if he has a careless wife He might as well be 
doomed to spend his strength and life in an 
attempt to catch water in a seive. The effort 
would be scarcely less certainly vain. Habits 
of enconomy, the way to turn everything in 
the household affairs to the best account — are 
among the things which every mother should 
teach her daughters 



One of the most important things connected 
with healthful living is warmth to the feet, 
and this can only be obtained through th« 
winter months by properly clothing them. To 
this end the loosest kind of boots and shoes 
are the warmest The air which is confined 
inside of a loose leather boot tends more to 
the warmth of the feet than the leather itself 
does, or even the stocking. A looc*ly -knitted 
stocking, however, is often very desirable, but 
frequently will allow the foot to be colder 
if the boot is tight, than if no stocking is worn 
and the boot is correspondingly loose. Let 
every one who would have warm feet through 
Ihe- coming winter, wear loosly-fitting boots. 
Cloth boots for indoors, of course, are always 
superior to leather boots. The cloth permits 
the exhalations from the feet to be carried off, 
and so keeps them dry, while the leather, in 
general terms, retains these exhalations and 
keeps the feet damp and uncomfortable. For 
this reason slippers, though the upper part of 
the feet are not covered at all, are often warm- 
er than the stoutest ttoots which retain all the 
moisture. — Laws of Life. 



SPEAK THE TEUTH IN LOYE. 



Do not advocate a holy life in a scolding 
and unsanctified tone. Don't press men to 
seek perfect peace as if you were driving re- 
luctant animals before you. Don't talk in 
funeral tones about it, argue as if the grave 
was yawning under your feet. It is the high 
birthright of every child of God to be like 
Him. You are not in the happiest condition 
to set it forth unless the "candle of the Lord" 
shines brightly upon your own heart and face. 
It is a Beulah land where heavenly gales fan 
the earth, and the fruits of Paradise invite the 
taste. Encourage the people of God to go up 
and possess it. Tell them they are all well 
able to do so, although the Anakim may still 
remain in the land. It is a good thing to 
carry into the pulpit with you on© of the 
clusters of grapes native to this "enchanted 
ground." There is nothing so impressive and 
subduing as a real, loving, glowing, melting 
heart-experience. Let this be seen, and the 
milk and honey and the fruit of that region 
will be greatly coveted. — Zions Herald,

BBETHREN'SALMANA G 



[1881, 



COKFIBEKCB 11^ CHKIST. 



The dew of grace is shed upon my wasting 
spirit with refreshing coDSolation. My soul 
languishes, but soon it will exult in thee ; my 
flesh withereth, but after a few days it will re- 
vive. I am compelled to undergo corruptions, 
but thou wilt free me from this decay, ^hen 
thou bringest me out of all evils Thou hast 
newly created me in the image of God, and 
how can the work of thy hands perish? Thou 
hast redeemed me from all my foes, and shall 
death alooe triumph over me? Thou hast de- 
voted thy body, thy blood, and thy entire self 
for my salvation ; how then shall death hinder 
those benefits which were bought with so pre- 
cious a price? Ttrou art m^^ righteousness, 
and my sin sbaU not prevail over thee; thou art 
my life and resurrection, and my death shall 
not overcome thee; ihou art my God and Satan 
shall not have power over thea Thou bass 
given me the earnest of the Spirit, and in thit 
will I triumph ; and I firmly believe, nothing 
doubting, that thou wilt permit me to enter 
the marriage-supper of the Lamb. Thou hast 
clothed me with the wedding garment, nor 
will I stitch to this, precious, mo-^t beautiful 
robe, the tattered rags of my righteousness. 
How dare I spoil its beauty with my abomin- 
able tatters ? In this robe will I appear before 
thy face, when thou wilt judge the world in 
righteousness and truth.- G^erAarcZ's Meditations 



IF 1 ONLY HAD CAPITAL. 



"If I only had capital," we heard a young 
man say, as he puffed away at a ten cent cigar, 
**I would do something." 

"If I ©nly had capital," said another, as he 
had just paid ten cents for a drink, "I would 
go into business." 

The same remark might have been heard 
from the young man loafing on the street cor- 
ner. Young man with the cia^ar, you are 
smoking away your capital. You from the 
dram shop ar drinking away yours, and de- 
stroying your body at the same time, and you 
from the street corner are wasting yours in 
idleness, and forming bad habits. Time is 
Money. Don't wait for a fortune to begin 
with. If you had $10 000 a year and spent it 
all. you would be poor still. Our men of power 
and influence did not start with fortunes. You, 
too, can make your mark if you will. But you 
must stop spending for what you don't need, 
and squandering your time in idleness. 



LIYING WATEE. 



A tourist in the Cat'^kills writes : "As we 
go out in the morning for our expeditions 
among the mountains, we each attach a little 
cup to our belt. Wandering and climbing over 
steep places, we often become very thirsty, 
and if we stop awhile and listen, we presently 
bear a gurgle under the rocks. We look, and 
see a tiny stream of the purest, sweetest water, 
and placing our cups close to the rock, we fill 
and drink, and are greatly refreshed " 

So it ij*, d^ar Chri tiaa, as we climb t,he rocky 
places of life ; weary and thirsty we often are, 
but if we stop to listen, we may always hear a 
Hweet murmur of Jiving water, and holding 
the cup of our hrart close to the Eock, we may 
fill, and drink, and be abundantly refreshed, 
For our fatners "drank of that spiritual Eock 
that followed them; and that Eock was Christ. 



THE AIE .m BBDEOOMS. 



As to tests, we are glad to see that a scien- 
entific lecturer has reminded people that 
nature gave them their noses to use, and he 
advises them to employ this picket guard of 
the body to see if the air of thdr bedrooms is 
right. "When you get up," he says, "leave 
your bedroom just as it was; go out into the 
pure morning air and breathe that till your 
noee is wide awake, then go back and take a 
few snuffs of your bedroom air; if it smells 
fresh and sweet , like out-door air, you have 
good ventiilation, and have breathed the 
breath of life all the night." If on the con- 
trary it smells close, musty, "thick," sickening, 
your nose will have told you what your sense 
ought to have made clear without the test. 



Tea drinkers now-a-days will do well to apply 
the followijig simple test to the tea purchased 
of their grocers : 

Turn out the infused leaves, and if they are 
found a good brown color, with fair substance, 
the tea will be wholesome ; but if the leaves 
are black and of a rotten texture, with an oily 
appearance, the tea will not be fit to drink- 
The purer the tea, the more the distinctively 
brown color of the leaf strikes the attention. 
The mixing that is frequently adopted to re- 
duce prices results in the two kinds of leayes 
being supplied together. It is important to 
see that the leaves have the serrated or saw 
like edges, without which no tea is genuine

THE GflUECHES OF S. W. MISSOURI. 



Walnut Creek Church is located in the 
north eastern part of Johnson county, about 
four miles north of Knob Foster, a station of 
the Missouri Pacific Railroad. It is the oldest 
church in south west Mifcsouri. It passed 
through a severe trial during the war. It was 
under the care of Elder Joseph Wampler, dur- 
ing whose life the church seemed to prosper, 
till towards the close of his life, and for some 
time afterwards, dark clouds threatened its 
prosperity, but of late years those clouds have 
passed away, and the church there is in peace 
and in a fair way for future prosperity. It is 
under the care of Elder Andrew Hutchison 
by whose mild, judicious management the 
future of that church is hopeful. They num- 
ber about 40 members and have a good church 
house in which to worship. 

Centreview Church is located in the cen- 
tral part of Johnson county, around the village 
of Centreview, on the line of Missouri Pacific 
Eailroad, It was organized about ten years 
ago. It is now under the immediate care of 
Eider A. Hutchison, and is also in a prosperous

<}Ouiity, in the vicinity of Carthage, and was 
organized some eight years ago, with a good 
membership, and was placed under the imme- 
diate care of Elder Addison Baker, since his 
death it is under the care of Elder George 
Barnhart, assisted in the ministry by brethren 
Wm. Harvey and S. Grarber. This church has 
^Iso prospered since its organization, and now 
has a membership of about 60, more or less. 

Shoal Creek Church is located in J^ewton 
<30unty, in the vicinity of Newtonia, and was 
organized eight or nine years ago, with a fair 
membership, and is in a prosperous condition, 
having now a membership of about 75. It is 
presided over by Eiders C. Harrader and G. 
Barnhart, assisted in the ministry by Bro. 
Wm. Hubbard It was in this church that 
Bro. Stein identified himself with the Breth- 
ren's church. They have a commodious house 
in which to worship. 

Texas County Church is located in Texas 
county, was organized a little over a year ago 
with a small membership, and is cared for by 
Elders Harrader and Barnhart. The organi- 
zation of this church is the result of Mission- 
ary effort on the part of the above Elders. 

The churches of S. W. Missouri are gener- 
ally in a prosperous condition, and the future 
looks quite encouraging. With such a begin- 
ning, m a fine country like S. W. Missouri, 
having an excellent climate, good soil, all kinds 
■of fruits, and an intelligent people, we may 
reasonably hope that the Brotherhood here at 
no distant day will be strong, 

J. S Mohler 



FIFTEEN FOLLIES. 



1. To think that the more a man eats the 
fatter and stronger he will become. 

2. To believe that the more hours children 
study at school the faster they learn. 

3. To conclude that if exercise is good for 
health, the more violent and exhausting it is, 
the more good is done. 

4. To imagine every hour taken from sleep 
is an hour gained. 

5. To act on the presumption that the small- 
est room in the house is large enough to sleep 
in. 

6. To argue that whatever remedy causes 
one to feel immediately better, is "good for" 
the system without regard to more ulterior 
effects. The "soothing syrup," for example, 
does stop the cough of children, and does ar- 
rest diarrhea, only to cause, a little later, 



alarming convulsions, or the more latal inflam- 
mation of the brain, or water on the brain ; at 
least, always protracts the disease. 

7. To commit an act which is felt in itself to 
be prejudicial, hoping that some how or other 
it may be done in your case with impunity. 

8. To advise another to take a remedy w;hich 
you have tried on yourself, or without making 
special inquiry whether all the conditions are 
alike. 

9. To eat with an appetite, or continue to 
eat after it has been satiated, merely to gratify 
the taste. 

10. To eat a hearty supper for the pleasura 
experienced during the brief time it is passing 
down the throat, at the expense of a whole 
night of disturbed sleep, and a weary waking 
in the morning. 

11. To remove a portion of the clothing im- 
mediately after exercise, when the most stupid 
drayman in IS^ew York knows that if he does 
not put a cover on his horse the moment he 
ceases work in winter, he will lose him in a 
few dajs by pneumonia. 

12. To contend that because the dirtiest 
children in the streets, or on the highway, are 
hearty and healthy, that, therefore, it is 
healthy to be dirty ; forgetting that continu- 
ous daily exposure to the pure out door air, in 
joyous, unrestrained activities, is such a pow- 
erful agency for health that those who live 
thus are well, in spite of rags and filth. 

13. To presume to repeat, later in life, with- 
out injury, the indiscretions, exposures, and 
intemperances which in the flash of youth 
were practiced with impunity. 

14. To believe that warm air is necessarily 
impure, or that pure, cool air is necessarily 
more healthy than the confined air of a close 
and crowded vehicle ; the latter, at most, can 
only cause fainting or nausea ; while entering 
a conveyance after walking briskly, lowering 
a window, thus while still, exposed to a 
draught, will give a cold infallibly, or an at- 
tack of pleurisy or pneumonia, which will 
cause weeks and months of suffering, if not 
actual death within four days. 

15. To "Eemember the Sabbath-day" by 
working harder and later on Saturday than on 
any other day in;4;fiia':TO with a view to 
sleeping late n,)ef^t '^morning, and staying at 
home ail day to^ rest, conscience being quieted 
by the plea of not "feeling very well." — MalVs

IN DEBT, IN DANGER. 



Saint Paul, who was a model preacher, did 
not think it unbecoming to remind the Ro- 
mans, in his Epistle, that they should "render 
to all their dues," and should "owe no man 
anything." There is indeed something con- 
trary to the everlasting principles of equity in 
withholding payment where payment can be 
made. It is not doing to others as we would 
be done by, and therefore he who is in debt is 
in danger of violating the moral law. Debt 
multiplies debts, for if the creditor be not paid 
himself he cannot pay his creditors, and thus 
the system of debt is perpetuated. If those, 
for example, who furnish their houses do not 
pay for the goods on delivery or very shortly 
afterwards, the cabinet maker, carpet manu- 
facturer, and the bookseller who filled the li- 
brary shelves, the iron monger who supplied 
the stoves, bath, and iron work, must inevita- 
bly be hindered in their business, unable to 
make prompt payments, doomed to bear the 
annoyance of being dunned, or the disadvant- 
age of having the price of wholesale goods 
raised, and tempted, if not driven, to withhold 
or diminish their laborers' wages. Hence 
arise loud complaints and sour faces in the 
workshop, relaxed energy, and sometimes dis- 
turbances and and 3trik'>s. Who are the chief 
culprits in such cases? Certainly those who, 
having competencies or wealth for their own 
selfish indulgence, keep the money that is due 
for their furniture still in the bank, or invest- 
ed and yielding interest 7 or what is worse, 
really have not the money at all, but expect 
it, at least hope for it, or perhaps squander it 
in needless display. Under either of these 
circumstances the voluntary debtor is in dan- 
ger. 

It is impossible to be too plain spoken in 
such a matter as this, and therefore if I take 
the text, "In debt, in danger," I am bound to 
say specifically in what danger, and not to 
lose myself in generalities. I have spoken of 
moral dangers; there are those also of bank- 
ruptcy, ruin, penury. Debt is the ^precursor 
of an overdrawn balance at the banker's, an 
income exceeded, increasing complications, 
habits of debt acquired by wife and child, sons 
^t school or elsewhere contracting heavy bills, 
peace of mind disturbed, equivocation, false- 
hood, and want of straightforward dealing, 
the prospects of heirs and survivors over- 
clouded, sleepless nights, overvsrrought nerves, 
digestion impeded, seeds of disease sown temp- 



tation to speculate, holding shares, debentures, 
and scrip that have lost all value in the money 
market, servants dismissed, friends lost, well- 
deserved reproaches- to be borne, and not un- 
frequently the bottle sought as a relief from 
torturing thoughts, and delirium tremens reach- 
ed as the dismal and bitter end. These are 
some of debt's dangers, but they are not all, 
nor are they exaggerated. They may not of- 
ten all alight on the same head, but those who 
persist in a system of needless and easily 
avoidable debt wlU hardly escape some of 
them» 

Reverse the picture. A man who avoids 
debt avoids numberless dangers. If misfor- 
tune overtakes him, he breaks the edge of it 
hy not being in debt. "At all events," he 
says, "I have no bills to pay." He is not 
afraid of every ring at the bell, nor of the first 
man he meets being a creditor whom he is 
putting off. If a windfall arrives he c^n en- 
joy it. It is not all bespoken long before, and 
swallowed up by the hungry moaths of im- 
portunate debts. He can usually make both 
ends meet, and often lay by something a^ the 
end of the year. He can aid a poor relation, 
or give a needy friend a helping hand. He 
practices self-restraint, and improves his moral 
character by adhering to a rule so simple, ^.nd 
so much to his own comfort and advantage, 
that he is astonished that any of his neigh- 
bors should go upon another track and make a 
show at the expense of their creditors. What- 
ever he has, eacs, drinks, wears, drives, rides, 
uses, is paid for. If it were not he would 
hardly think it his, or that he had any right 
to it. Several persons whom he knows, are 
in his eyes thieves and beggars, though they 
cut a considerable dash. They are thieves be- 
cause they order what they can never pay 
for, and beggars because they are insolent 
while they seem to be rich. The person who 
will not get in debt, though some friends 
laugh at him for it, and tell him that his 
scruples are old-fashioned and his ideas pecu- 
liar — this person, I say, who has the courage 
to be singular and the sense to be firm, will 
be far less in danger than others of being en- 
trapped into unlimited liability companies, 
which may at any moment call on their share- 
holders to pay up ruinous sums of money. 



There is no recorded joy in heaven over a 
church however elegant and costly; but there 
is "joy in heaven over one sinner that repeiit- 
eth." — Methodist Becorder.

DEATH OF DEBT. 



"This is the happiest day I have had in 
twenty years! I feel free," said olc of the 
greatest ornaments of the Supreme Court of 
the United States, to his sunny-faced child. 

''What makes you feel so happy papa?" 
asked the little girl. 

"I am out of debt! I have paid the last 
dollar I owed in the world, and have be on 
laboring with all my might for twenty years 
to work myself out of the miserable slavery." 

On the first day of April, 1862, Mrs. F , 

of S , was awakened by a tap at the door 

early in the morning, her husband being in 
the army. She spoke a word to one of her 
children, and was a corpse j She thought it 
was the landlord come for his rent, and know- 
ing she had not a dollar in the house, expect- 
ed to be turned into the street. 

The spacious halls of that fine mansion in a 
fashionable street in Boston, were lighted up 
for a gay party. The wife and two daughters 
had sent out their cards of invitation, and a 
joyous reunion of friends was anticipated. 
Already they had began to assemble At 
that moment, the husband and father, having 
murdered his inexorable creditor, was burning 
to ashes thje dead body of the unfortunate 
Parkman. It was not meant to intimate that 
debt would die ; that the happy time would 
ever arrive when pecuniary obligation would 



become extinct; but that debt brought death, 
literal death, sometimes, and sometimes, what 
is far worse, an infinitely greater misfortune. 
Debt blunts and blights the finest sensibilities 
of our nature; It eats out the sweetest domes- 
tic affections; It blasts the moral character ; 
it robs us of our manliness, and where there 
was once all that was noble, truthful, high- 
minded, there is nothing left but the charred 
waste of debased manhood, of contemptible 
prevarications, and mean concealments. The 
Demon of Debt! how it withers and wilts the 
beautiful flowers of conjugal love, of parental 
affection, and the holier emotions that belong 
to the Infinite One! How it poisons every 
gladness, robs every smile of its beauty, cuts 
up by the root every glorious quality of our 
nature, and makes of him who might have 
been a man, a poor, fawning, faltering, cring- 
ing wretch, waiting the creditor's utterances 
with the fears of a slave, with the trembling 
of a culpit ; the fire has no warmth, the food 
no taste, the flower no beauty, the air no life, 
the sky no sun. the brain perceives nothing, 
the eye sees nothing, the heart feels nothing 
but the chill damps of the specter Debt, in the 
person of the creditor, that so looms up in the 
daytime as to shut out all the blue sky of life, 
and in the hours of sleep, sits like a horrid 
nightmare, with the weight of Peiion on 
Olympus piled. With these before him, who 
but an idiot could be induced to incur an in- 
debtedness which there was not ample means 
on hand to satisfy, if necessary, within the 
hour ? — HalVs Journal of Health. 



Diphtheria. — The following is said to be an 
unfailing cure for the most fatal disease among 
children and older persons, and the remedy is 
simple and can always be had, we take pleasure 
in giving it to the public. It is as follows : 
Take a teaspoonful of flour of brimstone in a 
wine glass of water and stir with the finger 
instead of a spoon, as the sulphur does not 
readily mix with water. When the sulphur is 
well mixed, gargle with, it, and in a few min- 
utes the patient will be out of danger. Brim- 
stone kills every species of fungus in man, 
beast or plant Instead of spitting out the 
gargle, it is recommended to swallow it In 
extreme cases when the throat is too nearly 
closed to allow gargling, blow sulphur through 
a quill into the throat, and after the fungus 
has shrunk to allow it, then gargle. This re 
ceipt is said to be of great value.

ITEMS WOETH SAYHSTG. 

Lemon juice, used as a gargle, is aaid to be a 
specific against diphtheria and similar throat 
troubles. 

Thoroughly wetting the hair once or twice 
a week with a weak solution of salt water will 
prevent it falling out. 

Housekeepers may be glad to know that a 
tablespoonful of ammonia in 1 gallon of warm 
water will restore the color of carpets. 

To cure a cancer drink a tea made from the 
tops of red clover. About one quart a day 
should be taken internally, and the tea should 
be used as a wash twice a day ; very strongly 
recommended. 

Those who dry flowers and wish to preserve 
their color should immerse them for about a 
quarter of an hour in a mixture composed of 
equal parts of water and spirits of wine. This 
seems to "fix" the color. 



To Eemovb Grease. — The collars of coats 
become soiled very quickly from contact with 
hair, but chloroform will clean them very well 
without any bad odor. To remove grease 
from carpets and restore colors, take a handful 
of crushed soap bark (quillaqa) to a pail of 
water. Scrub the^spots and sponge the carpet. 
The following is said to be one of the best 
receipts for liniment known. We obtained it 
while traveling through the west last fall 
where it is extensively used and said to be of 
great value : 

1 oz. Oil Hemlock, 

1 oz. Oil Origanum, 

1 oz. Oil Eosmary, 

1 oz Oil Sassafras, 

1 oz. Liquid Ammonia, 

1 oz Gum Camphor,
